TREND REPORT "OVERALLS ARE EVERYWHERE THIS SEASON, AND MADEWELL'S STORE OPENING WAS THE PERFECT OCCASION TO LATCH ONTO THE TREND. I OPTED FOR BLACK INSTEAD OF DENIM BECAUSE IT'S A COLOR THAT CAN BE DRESSED UP OR DOWN. I PAIRED THEM WITH A CHAMBRAY BUTTON-DOWN FOR THIS LATE-SUMMER NIGHT, BUT I CAN'T WAIT TO BREAK THEM OUT IN WINTER TO WEAR OVER SWEATERS AND TURTLENECKS." — PaperCity assistant digital editor Jailyn Marcel MADEWELL MAD ANNE LEE PHILLIPS PARTIES WITH BLUE-JEAN BABES AND DENIM DUDES. PHOTOGRAPHY JAY TOVAR. OCTOBER | PAGE 30 | 2015 for WHO DOESN'T LOVE A GREAT PAIR OF JEANS? T hose dreaming of denim flocked when the classic Americana- inspired label Madewell, the tomboy sister of J. Crew, fêted the grand opening of its Highland Village store. The store may be new, and the label newly polished up, but Madewell was founded in 1937. Festivities began at the store at the crack of 10, when the first 25 customers received coveted gift cards. That evening, Madewell and PaperCity invited local tastemakers to an evening of chatting and shopping. DJ Athenz spun beats for the cool girls and the boys who love them: style bloggers Chandra Bonine of In the Loop Style, Molly Miller of A Piece of Toast, Candace Thomas of Luxe with Kids, and Lyndsey Zorich of L. Avenue; as well as guests Ella Jackson, Sophia Anderson, Hannah Anderson, Tiffany Hamilton-Schoppe, Lauren Berryhill, Kendall Hannah, Julie Weinstein, Megan Silianoff, Johnny Holloway, Matt Morgan, designer Hunter Bell and husband Paul who recently relocated to Houston from NYC. Madewell's district manager Kristain Rush and store manager Selena Demps wished all good night, as guests left carrying black totes inscribed Bien Fait, filled with denim and buffalo checks. TREND REPORT "I'M A HUGE FAN OF THE HIGH RISER SKINNY SKINNY AND OWN SEVERAL PAIRS. I THINK THE HIGHER WAIST ACTUALLY MAKES YOUR LEGS LOOK LONGER. BUT WIDE-LEG IS DEFINITELY HAVING A MOMENT. FOR THE PARTY, I PAIRED MY DARK DENIM SKINNY SKINNYS WITH A PINSTRIPE BUTTON-DOWN AND BIG JEWELRY. CAN'T GO WRONG WITH CLASSIC MADEWELL!" — PaperCity style editor Francine Ballard Allie Wood- Rosenberg Kendall Hanna Mauri Oliver Berlin Nicholas Maria Branco Amanda Chapa Farrell Lawo Lyndsey Zorich Holly Kuhn Hannah Swiggard Mercedes Krietsch Michelle Sanchez Leslie Rivas-Kelly Jillian Goltzman Lauren Braud Selena Demps Remy Vogt Kathy Nguyen Julianne Agno Johnny Holloway Amy Sidora Kara Smith Nancy Bihlmaier Lauren Marek Carra Sykes Melissa Laree Cunningham Lauren Berryhill Ella Jackson Nikki Ndukwe Michelle Klovans Brandi Lisenbe Athenz Jailyn Marcel Megan Silianoff Chandra Bonine Candace Thomas Molly Miller Kristain Rush
